Sharing some good news!

Back in February, my 24 year old son was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. We caught it early and began chemotherapy in March... Yesterday we got the news that the latest scans show no signs of any cancer! 

He still has 4 more treatments, just to be certain, but it is looking good! God's provision comes in miracles and science. I'll take both!

On a more somber note - I had been PM-ing with BobW about this, and suddenly he's no longer a member on the Forum. Email hasn't been answered either. If anyone has an address or phone number from maybe a sale to/from Bob - I'd love to try to reach him if possible. Knowing he was dealing with brain cancer himself, I fear the fight may be over...

Good news indeed. I hope Bob is doing alright. I hope you can contact him. It is with much sadness that Lonnie Knight, a fine musician from Minneapolis, lost his battle with cancer this week.

I have Bob's mailing address, but I won't post it here. PM me and I'll send it to you that way.

I don't have any other info about his condition - we PM'd a few times during the Forum 50th T-shirt project and I mailed him a shirt, but he didn't talk in detail about his health. That's all I know.

Hooked, At 27 I had stage 2 Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Had Major Surgery, 2 rounds of radiation (5 weeks per) and at 61 still kicking. The have made huge advances since I went through it 34 yrs ago. Wishing your son a quick recovery and very long life!!

Thanks for the encouraging word! We are so happy with this report. Looking forward to the future... Medical bills are only tough if you are there to pay them! We'll take that - all day!

I'm curious - does CycleBob mean bicycle? If so - another point in common....

Ugh - that stinks. I am getting back on the bike after a 10 year hiatus. Not as fast as I once was, but I still love riding the road!

Sorry to hear that. My son-in-law cycles quite a bit (along with racing fairly successfully), including to work occasionally when weather permits, and sometimes we're concerned for his safety. Fortunately, he lives in a fairly rural area, but less traffic doesn't remove the danger. He's a father now, so he's also aware that he has to be wise and prudent about his rides.
